Tasks for participants
Each student who participates can give up his/her preferred BPS subject (air quality, lighting, acoustics, urban heat island effect). Further, the student can give up his/her preferred BPS aspect he/she would like to analyse for the buildings analysis. Based on these preferences, the assignments will be distributed among the students.
Each student who participates the study trip has to do the following:
1. Prepare (before study trip) and report (after study trip) 1 assignment for the BPS subject assigned
and perform the measurement during the study trip.
2. Analyse in pairs circa 2-4 buildings on the BPS related aspect assigned.

The assignments consist of an interim report, which will be submitted before department, measurments executed during the trip and a final report. There are four subjects for the assignments:
2. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
